The Associated Press reports that “U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said on Wednesday that a naval facility in Rhode Island is doing what the entire Defense Department should do: develop technology more quickly.”  

“Carter made the comments about the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport after he visited the center to see the latest in unmanned vehicles and other undersea technologies.”  

“‘One of the things that’s very inspiring to me and that cut through all of the projects that I’ve seen is the fact that the Navy, here at this facility, is doing what we all need to be doing everywhere in the department, which is speeding up the pace at which ideas get into the fleet,’ he said.”
